A Flea in Her Ear is a classic french farce from the turn of the 20th century that involves love, misscomunication, mistaken identity, high tempers, short fuses, guns, liquor, misstresses and a rotating bed. For this show i chose music from the earlier portion of the time period for the uptight, family oriented, do gooder family, and more risque music from the 1920s for the saussy middle act at the hotel coc’dor. The can-can was used during the slap-stick, door slamming ending to A II and in a mechanical fashion during the bed rotation.
